Misting Nozzle Sizes
Misting Nozzles can be sized based on specific usage needs and system requirements. Generally speaking, the size of the misting nozzles will affect the particle size and spray volume of the Misting.
Misting Nozzles Nozzle aperture Size
The aperture size of misting nozzles refers to the diameter of the opening through which water or mist is emitted，The misting nozzle aperture size can affect the misting effect, coverage, and water consumption. The appropriate aperture size should be chosen based on the specific requirements of your application

Misting Nozzles Nozzle diameter
The diameter of the nozzle determines the flow rate and atomization effect of Misting. Common nozzle diameter sizes include 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, etc. Smaller diameters are generally used for fine mist spraying, while larger diameters are suitable for large-volume spraying.
Misting Nozzle angle
The nozzle angle of misting nozzles refers to the direction in which the mist is emitted from the nozzle. Different nozzle angles can provide different spray patterns and coverage
45 degrees: This angle provides a wider spray pattern, covering a larger area. It is often used for general misting applications, such as outdoor cooling or patio misting
25 degrees: This angle provides a more focused spray pattern, ideal for targeted misting or specific areas that require more precise coverage
15 degrees: This angle provides a narrow spray pattern, suitable for applications that require concentrated misting, such as spot cooling or misting in small spaces
Distance Between Mister Nozzles
When spacing misting nozzles, it is generally recommended to keep them 2 to 3 feet apart for even coverage and distribution of mist. Misting lines can be installed either at the perimeter of the cooled space or brought inside the space, depending on the specific requirements and design of the misting system. It is important to consider factors such as the layout of the space, the desired cooling effect, and the specific needs of the area when determining the placement and spacing of misting nozzles
To calculate the distance between two Mister nozzles, you would need to know the coordinates or positions of each nozzle. Once you have the coordinates, you can use the distance formula to find the distance between them.
The distance formula is:
d = sqrt((x2 – x1)^2 + (y2 – y1)^2)
Where (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) are the coordinates of the two nozzles.
Plug in the coordinates into the formula and calculate the distance.
Our Selection of Misting Nozzles
If you live where temperatures are higher, we recommend using a .016″/.40mm nozzle. The same recommendation if you install the line around 10 feet because our fine mist evaporates easily and you need more water in the air to fill a larger space with the cool evaporative mist.

What is the flow rate of a misting nozzle?
If a nozzle circuit is installed correctly, and the nozzles are not fouled, the average flow rate should be in the 40 – 50 ml/minute range. Below about 30 ml/min, the mist is not projected well.
How much water does a misting nozzle use?
To give you a rough estimate, misting nozzles with a 0.016″ orifice size (0.4 mm) typically have a flow rate of around 0.5 to 1.0 gallons per hour (GPH) per nozzle. However, please note that these numbers can vary depending on the specific nozzle and manufacturer.
It’s important to consider the number of misting nozzles in your system and the duration of operation to calculate the total water usage accurately. For example, if you have 20 misting nozzles with a flow rate of 0.5 GPH each and you run the system for one hour, the total water usage would be approximately 10 gallons
How far apart should misting nozzles be?
The spacing between misting nozzles depends on various factors, including the desired coverage area, the type of misting system, and the specific application.In general, a spacing of 2 to 5 feet (60 to 150 cm) between misting nozzles is commonly recommended.
